I put this together three years ago (September 5th, 2018 according to properties) … My brothers are right – my artwork looked much better in the past, before my depressive psychosis fully developed, and I lost concentration on the simplest of tasks. I just need to discipline myself to make more art, and actually spend more time on each art piece as well, instead of doing everything at the deadline, or in a couple of hours before I can’t focus anymore. 😅
I updated my Instagram with this snapshot and description last Thursday (August 26th);
“Attending a free art webinar creating fantasy art with Corel Painter, the teacher is named Davey Baker. I have a really old version of Corel Painter Essentials, and think about getting the latest Corel Painter, since I know Rob likes Corel Painter, he’s used free trials, and done some impressive paintings with it! My best paintings were done with Corel Painter too, on this note. I’m getting a new laptop soon courtesy of my boss, so I’ll probably wait until then to get the new Corel Painter. The character on the screen reminds me of my sensei, Yoshimitsu. “
Tbh I barely understood it, haha! All this talk about a “glow” brush and such, must be from the newer Corel Painters, but I assume tis similar to Photoshop Element’s “burn” brush or something. 😅
(I’m also struggling with concentration lately due to being clinically depressed, tho.)
My homemade Soul Calibur OC, Sha-mitsu, in an AU with Yoshimitsu from Tekken, pleading with her sensei to not leave, since she worries about him when he’s gone. This was inspired by an image of a woman with a samurai, and comes across as a wee bit romantic to some!
This was my first painting of 2009, it’s my homemade Tekken character, Ilya Dragunov, who is the younger sister of Sergei Dragunov, whom OctoberNocturnecosplayed back then on his gallery White-Angel-of-Death. =^^=
